This is just to say that we’re hanging with family for the Thanksgiving holiday.
And a quick reminder that every family is crazy; we’re just more comfortable around the crazy we grew up in than with an other crazy on the planet.
Every year, after we’ve demolished a turkey, dressing, and pumpkin pie with our families, Handsome and I drive to the Houston Galleria for the Uptown Holiday Lighting. Caroling and Santa and FIREWORKS!!
For me, this is the official start of Christmas and this year was one of the best ever. If you get the chance to go next year, go. It’ll be the 25th anniversay of this celebration and it looks to be the biggest ever. And maybe we’ll see you there.
What I’ve been up to lately:
Parmesan Rosemary Butter Crackers, (modified with rosemary instead of thyme, a little more butter and a little less flour)
Zucchini Bread, (well, maybe not this exact recipe, but this was the closest I could find to mine. except I skip the walnuts)
Pumpkin and Cinnamon Pecan Breakfast Rolls, (completely made up recipe using puff-pastry, left-over pumpkin butter, and minced cinnamon pecans)
Autumn Spice Sugar Cookies (really just left-over pie crust with sugar & spice sprinkled over)
Mom’s Homemade Cornbread Dressing (time well spent in My Momma’s kitchen on Thanksgiving morning learning her secret recipe)
If modern climatologists have faked, distorted, or deleted data to support their theories of global warming, which has resulted in our nation and others actively pursing legislation to implement policies to address the “problem,” we’ve got a much bigger problem than the weather.
